Ohio includes all students, including those with disabilities, in state tests, and their results are included in state accountability. All children matter, and Ohio has a responsibility to make sure that all children learn and grow in our classrooms.

This information explains the current state of assessment and support for Ohio’s students.

Special education paraprofessionals (SPED parapros) help students in nearly all Ohio districts. In fact, across the nation SPED parapros outnumber special education teachers by a factor of 2 to 1. They are a large proportion of the special education workforce, but there has been no systematic assessment of districts’ needs in organizing their work.

For this reason the Ohio Partnership for Excellence in Paraprofessional Preparation (OPEPP) is conducting the first statewide survey to describe the role, function, and training needs of parapros in Ohio from the district perspective. Please help OPEPP by reporting your district’s information and experience on the survey. There are about 25 questions and answering them should take about 15 minutes.
